  1. Must say that the film exploded far far beyond my expectations.

    It was an excellent combination of comedy and romance with extraordinary feelings.

    Baifern Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul gave her Outstanding Performance..It's such a quality performance from young actress like this, she's utterly adorable.. yeah.. what more I can say.

    Love Baifern Too Much So Much Very Much Right Now.

    This is a film that you can watch over and over and over again and it will never get old.

    Worth every currency,dollar,cent.. whatever.

    9/10 MUST SEE.

  2. I watched this movie a couple of months ago with my friends. At first I wasn't interested because I wasn't really into Thai movies. But I gave it a try because many friends said it was good. This movie is about an unpopular teenage girl named Nam who has a crush on Shone, a handsome popular guy. It's fun actually to see how Nam is changing into a beautiful girl, because at first I thought it was a completely different person. And also this triangle love between Nam, Shone and Shone's friend. The ending is quite good. I recommend this movie because it's fun, not boring, and just honest. The acting is quite good. For older people and teenage boys, it's still watchable. I actually cried and laughed watching it. Enjoy the movie! Highly recommended

  3. Full Review posted @ shanatalks.wordpress.com

    The first 15 minutes of the movie was the introduction of the characters and the situation the characters were in. The story is centered on an average, plain-looking and dark-skinned girl named Nam (Baifren Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul) who is secretly in love with an older Grade 10 guy named Shone (Mario Maurer). Shone, a new student, a rumored troublemaker and a photography enthusiast, easily becomes a popular student in school because of his good looks and soccer-playing skills.

    The movie was like a real life adaptation of the Ugly Duckling. Nam was well aware that she has slim chances of being noticed by Shone because of her physical looks, but does not give up easily. With the help of her close girl friends, Nam tries everything to make herself more beautiful and outstanding in school, hoping that Shone will like her someday. Nam's transformation each year was a refreshing scene you'll look forward to in the movie. In every change in her look, you'll wonder if by this time Shone will finally see her efforts and hope that he'll reciprocate her feelings.

    Another character that indirectly helped Nam in her transformation from an ugly dark-skinned girl to a glowing lovely growing up lass was her domineering but comical teacher Inn (Sudarat Budtporm). She was one hell of a comedian. I was really laughing hard every time she has a scene from the movie. She's like Pokwang. Her acting and funny antics were effortless! I can say that she was one of the characters that will sustain your interest in the movie.

    Aside from the comical part of the movie, its tear-jerky scenes are really worth your tears. The most painful part for me was when Nam finally had the courage to reveal her true feelings for Shone. However, upon seeing a note in Shone's shirt that Shone and Pin, a girl from Shone's class who once defended her from bullies, are in a relationship, she gets heartbroken and weepingly wished Shone and Pin the best. She even fell in the swimming pool! Baifren Pimchanok acting for this scene was awesome. She was able to portray the right emotion needed for the scene. You'll feel sorry for her and share her pain, and at the same time makes you remember the first time your heart was broken.

    Mario Maurer's acting on the other hand, was very consistent. You really wouldn't notice that he's hiding something from his cool facade. Midway in the movie, I even thought that Nam should just give it up because I think Shone would never like her. There was no hint whatsoever that he likes Nam too. So the twist in the story was really a revelation for me. When the POV shifted to Shone's, it was unveiled that Shone likes Nam since she was an M.1 student. That was really unexpected! Of course, I knew that it would have a happy ending since this is romance but I never thought Shone has feelings for her too even when Nam was still not pretty. Ah… The beauty of first love.

    Okay, I was really into the movie. But… there are still some parts of it I don't like. First, Nam's friends. For the whole of the movie, they look the same. I mean, look at Nam! She developed herself in every step of the way but her friends never even changed-not one bit. They don't have to make them all beautiful because that will make the movie unrealistic but they could have made them look different for every passing year. It was like they were stuck with their appearance from 1st Grade.

    Second, Shone's appearance after nine years and again Nam's friends. The dark-skinned Shone doesn't look nice. I know they want him to look mature so they curled his hair and made him tanner but for me it he turned out "baluga". They could have made him mature in so many other ways. Nam friends had changed but it was too drastic. I know nine years was a long period but the change in them seems too sudden. They tried to show that one of her friends became a pilot or something but it didn't fit. If they made the changes throughout the movie, then their sudden change at the end wouldn't be a shock.

    Lastly, I was not contented with the ending. Yes, it's a happy ending but after all they've went through, I was like, that was it?! The ending was okay but it was very brief. It left too many questions. It's as if the director and the writer just wanted to end the movie and raise the curtains so they made them meet on a television show. I was happy that they met again and their feelings were finally revealed and in national television but again it was not enough. There's the nine years gap of what happened with their lives and the explanation of the black book. Maybe it was probably even better if they included a little teaser at the end showing what happened after their television appearance. Well, at least there'd be a sequel for the movie so might as well stop bitching about the ending now.

    I fell in love with the story. Watching the movie was like riding a train back to memory lane. It made me remember my own craziness in high school. The beauty of first love, friendship and dreams. It was a refreshing movie from what I usually watch here in the Philippines. I just wish we can do something like this—very light but very meaningful.

  4. This is a film that anyone can enjoy, provided they leave their own cultural bias' by the door. The story in itself is pretty unremarkable… it's a teen love story, and if there's a way to create something unique in the way of plot vehicles for this genre, I'd like to hear it. What this particular film does, in its own sublime way, is reveal so much about the character and culture of the world's most lovable people. Thais are at once childlike and somber. The inhabit a world that is at once filled with mystical notions and aspirations, and also rife with the most petty and spiteful stereotypes and internal racism.

    Nam, the protagonist for this film, is characterized as "plain" and "awkward" in the film's beginning. But she's not… she's a quite pretty young girl. What she's really subordinated by is her Thai features and dark complexion. If you've not lived here, you may be entirely unaware of the social status Chinese features and pale skin award people, and how much shame is bestowed on those who look exactly like the indigenous people of this region. The filmmaker is courageous in revealing this less-than-laudable aspect of Thai culture, with Nam's teacher calling her "dark skinned" in the film's opening moments.

    In spite of this honesty, the movie also manages to very lovingly portray the universal extremes of a girl's blooming feelings for her first boy crush, but again very Thai in it's portrayal. From Nam's sizable but immediately recognizable friend Cheer, to her celebratory booty shaking dance moment, there is so much here that is uniquely Thai, and very endearing to those of us who love and admire these warm hear- ted people.

    Is the movie overly simple in it's plot? Who cares. This isn't a mystery, it's a very very real portrayal of a Thai girl's fantasy of romance. Everything from the single parent household to the female dominated population speaks of Thailand today.

    I loved this movie because it didn't try to be American or European, or another Chinese Kung Fu epic.. it's just a great little story about a Thai girl's dreams.
